How do you follow up a car as iconic as the legendary Superboss? And what do you do if your mothership decides that performance is no longer important? This is the dilemma that faced Delta Motor Corporation in the early '90s... To make matters worse, BMW had launched the thrilling E36 M3 and Volkswagen was grabbing headlines with the Golf VR6. What to do indeed...
Well, in typical South African fashion, Delta Motor Corp went shopping for some high-performance bits... It took the turbocharged 2.0L 16V "red-top" from the European-market Calibra Turbo, a 6-speed gearbox from Getrag, and a limited-slip differential from Andre Verwey and came up with this... the Kadett 200t S. When it was launched the power output was a gobsmacking 160kW, and the claimed 0-100kph time was 7 seconds. Later on the car was slightly down-tuned due to overheating issues, but by then the car's personality as an unruly, hardcore, chillipepper-hot hatch was cemented.
Some say 500 were made, others less. What we know is that very few remain. Watch a video on the 200t S here.
